Lesson Transcript

Welcome back, everyone! Today we’re going to do Top 15 Happy Words. Are you ready? Ok, let’s begin!
1. มีความสุข (Mii khwaam sùk) “happy”
Happy words, of course, have to begin with “Happy”!
มีความสุข (Mii khwaam sùk)
So, “Are you happy?” คุณมีความสุขมัย (khun mii khwaam sùk mái)
2. กระปรี้กระเปร่า (grà-bprîi-grà-bprào) “energetic”
I know that it is difficult because you have ปรี้(bprîi) which force you to click your tongue while you are speaking. Click, click like that. If you can’t, just say, gabpi-gabpao. It’s not 100% grammatically correct but people still can be about to understand what you are saying
กระปรี้กระเปร่า (grà-bprîi-grà-bprào).
Even I, you can see that, have difficulty pronouncing this words.
3. ชอบ (châawp) “like”
ฉันชอบเรียนหนังสือ (chăn châawp riian năng-sǔue) “I like studying.”
4. ตลก (dtà-lòk) “funny”
“You're funny.” คุณเป็นคนตลก (khun bpen khon dtà-lòk)
5. ตื่นเต้น (dtùuen-dtên) “excited”
“I am excited.” ฉันตื่นเต้น. (chăn dtùuen-dtêen)
6. พอใจ (phaaw-jai) “satisfied”
“I'm satisfied with the result.” ฉันพอใจกับผลงานนี (chăn phaaw-jai gàp phŏn ngaan níi)
7. ภูมิใจ (phuum-jai) “proud”
“I'm proud of you.” ฉันภูมิใจในตัวคุณ (chăn phuum-jai nai dtuua khun)
8. ยอดเยิ่ยม (yâawt-yîiam) “great”
You can say, just, เยิ่ยม (yîiam).
9. รัก (rák) “love”
The most popular sentence is, of course, “I love you,” ฉันรักคุณ (chăn rák khun).
I love you guys.
10. สวย (sǔuai) “beautiful”
It’s a good way to compliment anyone. However, the tone is very important because if the tone is off it means different thing. สวย (sǔuai) is “beautiful” or “pretty” , ชาย (suuai) means “unfortunate”. So be careful of the intonation that you use.
11. อบอุ่น (òp-ùn) “warm”
“You are a warm person.” คุณเป็นคนที่อบอุ่น (khun bpen khon thîi òp ùn)
However, if you want to say that this place is warm in terms of temperature-wise, you don’t say อบอุ่น(òp ùn), you say, อุ่น(ùn), just the last word.
ที่ตรงนี้อุ่น (thîi dtrong níi ùn) “This spot/this place is warm.”
12. มีความหวัง (mii kwaam wăng) “hopeful”
“I'm hopeful that I'm going to pass tomorrow's exam.”
ฉันมีความหวังว่า พรุ่งนี้ ฉันจะสอบผ่าน (chăn mii kwaam wăng wâa phrûng-níi chăn jà sàawp phàan)
13. ใจดี (jai-dii) “kind”
“You're a kind person.” คุณเป็นคนใจดี (khun bpen khon jai dii)
14. มองโลกในแง่ดี (maawng lôok nai ngâae dii) “optimistic”
“I'm an optimistic person.” ฉันเป็นคนมองโลกในแง่ดี (chăn bpen khon maawng lôok nai ngâae dii)
15. เป็นคนยยิ้มง่าย (bpen khon yím ngâai) “quick to smile”
I don’t think that you have an exact word in English, if you smile often with anything, this is a word that people will say it to you.
เธอเป็นคนยิ้มง่าย (thooe bpen khon yím ngâai) “You're quick to smile.”
